Hey this is Reuben with Competition Accessories and today we are looking at the Michelin Pilot Power probably one of the most venerable sport bike tires that we sell here at Competition Accessories. It has been out for a long time now don't get this confused with the Michelin Pilot Power 2CT's. They are very similar in the way that they look the big difference with the 2CT is you are getting a dual compound tire which has softer rubber on the shoulders and a firmer rubber in the center. Where as the standard Pilot Power from Michelin is a single compound on the front and the rear. You are going to consider this tire if you arent going to do a ton of highway or commuting miles on your sport bike, maybe you are doing some more aggressive riding on the weekend hitting the twisty in the canyons and/or taking these to the track. The main difference there is the 2CT is going to help maintain the profile of the tire just a little bit longer because it has that firmer rubber in the center so it is going to prevent flat spotting as quickly. Now I will say that a dual compound tire by any means guarantee that you wont flat spot your tire. If your running straight on the roads all the time then that is what is going to happen its going to wear out the center of the tire faster. Guys doing the track days all the time are going to be the opposite they are going to wear out the sides faster than they will the center. It all depends on how your riding. You can save a little bit of money when comparing the Pilot Power to the Pilot Power 2CT's so if budget is a concern and you still want a good set of tires obviously the Michelin Pilot Power is one to check out. Couple of things to know they have really taken their Moto-GP tire technology and even though this tire has been out for a while now it is really respectable when it comes to the technology they use a synthetic rubber blend in the compound when they make this tire another thing that Michelin is known for very well their tire profile. If you talk to any guys that run the Michelin Pilot Power 2CT's they will tell you that they turn in and they feel very different when your on the bike. If you take a look at the crown of this tire it has a very aggressive peak to it, it comes up to a point and then it drops off fairly quickly then it is kind of flatter on the sides so what that allows it to do is get really nice flickable feeling in the corners turn in really fast and then you have a real nice large contact point on the shoulders here. Another thing that is very noticeable on the 2CT' and the Pilot Power is the Lance C ratio they have less than 12% of tire tread on the grooves and the rest is solid rubber so it is going to do a good job of evacuating water but it is not a rain tire by any chance. It is going to be fine for street use and if you compare it to tires like the Pilot Road 3s which is Michelin's Sport touring tire that tire has much more aggressive siping and tread pattern on it to to help evacuate water and debris for really wet weather conditions. This tire performs very respectably in wet and dry conditions but it is definitely constructed and designed with high performance in mind when it comes to road grip and everything. Taking a look at the front you have a little bit more in terms of rain grooving on this one because it is paving the way for the rear tire. It has a nice low profile on this one as well and again that real nice rubber compound that Michelin is known for. Nice things about the Michelin Pilot Power series is that it gets up to temperature real nice and fast. I will say that I have heard and found that they are a little bit more tire pressure sensitive. So your definitely going to want to make sure what tire pressures works best for you on you motorcycle and the conditions that you are riding in.

    Michelin pilot powers - trackjunkie750   SC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: [None]
    Cons: [None]

    Nice tires with good grip all the way to the edge. they don't last long 5k but these are not touring tires either so that is the compromise you will have to make.

    Great tires - Vegas   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Sticky Sticky Sticky
    Cons: Nada

    I have these on my Hayabusa and cannot tell you how much better they ride than the OEM Bridgestones.3k miles on them so far and it looks as if I will get more than twice that before replacing. And yes I do at least two or three 35-135 romps every ride. I thought the back would have been toast by now but pleasantly surprised.

    Execllent Tire - John L.   PA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Execllent wear and great traction.
    Cons: Not for expert or pro level track use.

    Michelin Pilot Power Motorcycle tires are and execellent tires. I have a set on my Hayabusa and they stick to the road like glue. Having a Hayabusa I have gone through many sets of tires before putting on the Michelin Pilot. I just got a set for my track bike and as I expected another great investment. For the money and product I will continue to make this the tire of choice.

    michelin pp - Strafer   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: great grip & ride
    Cons: wears out too soon

    I have run this tire almost exclusively since it's introduction on all of my bikes & have nothing but praise for it's grip in wet or dry & the way it rides over less than perfect tarmac. The only downside is it wears out too soon, 3500-4000 is the best I get out of a set but it's a trade off I'm willing to accept for the excellent performance.

    tires - tommymac   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: good grip and durability
    Cons: [None]

    I have used these tires for many years now and despite the new powers and pilot roads I stick with these. The grip well, are good in the wet and am getting around 9k miles on a set. So why change a good thing that works.

    pilotpower rear - jim   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: great traction great price
    Cons: [None]

    when the tire was balanced it didn't need any weights added. the tire shop checked it again and still no weights added. great price and great traction what more could ask for.

    Amazingly priced - JB   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: fantastic low price, runs real good
    Cons: havent found any yet

    Eric   MN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: awesome
    Cons: none

    best tire i have ever put on my bike, you wont be disappointed.

    Pilot Power Tires - Steve V   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Traction, Relatively Reasonable Cost
    Cons: None so far

    I have only put 250 miles on these since mounting them but thus far, they are great tires.Good traction, even when cold. They rotate easily, so changing direction mid corner is effortless.Not sure about wet traction, I hate riding in the rain.No clue how they will wear. But they cannot be any worse than the Q2s I replaced. I got 3500 out of my last Q2 rear and 6000 out of the last Q2 front.
